With minimal budget and a tiny team Angleo Milano has created FAME, one of the world’s most unique and respected festivals of street art.
Over the past few years Angelo Milano has lured a plane-load of brilliant artists including Blu, David Ellis, Momo, Akay and Birmingham’s own Lucy MacLauchlan to a small town in southern Italy, by dangling the carrot of sea, sun and blank walls to paint on. With minimal budget and a tiny team – his dad did the driving, his mum the cooking – he created FAME, one of the world’s most unique and respected festivals of street art. Though some of the artworks have lasted longer than others, thankfully Angelo has done a great job of capturing the whole process on video. Tonight he’ll be talking about the highs and lows of festival organisation, and showing some of FAME’s best films.
